Casual Fridays – Tips for Men

By popular demand, I thought I should share some tips for the men in our lives on what to and what not to wear for casual Fridays at the office.

  • Jeans – again, same tip with the ladies last week, make sure there are no faded spots, frays, holes, patches. Dressy jeans is the way to go, with DARK colours.

  • Pants – Casual tailored pants are the way to go. Leave your cargo pants and shorts for the weekend.  As far as colour goes, beige, khaki, black, charcoal and navy blue are all safe colours to go for.

  • Tops – If you are wearing jeans, team it up with a nice shirt – NOT Hawaiian shirts! You’re not on a holiday, you are still going to work, so it doesn’t mean you should leave your professional self behind. Unless of course your office is having some kind of theme for the day – which is usually very highly unlikely. If you were wearing pants, team it up with a long-sleeved PLAIN coloured t-shirt. Not brightly coloured ones, just plain, t-shirts and team it up with a nice jacket. NOT denim jacket but a tailored jacket. Nice woolen sweaters  would also go well with shirts or t-shirts with either pants or jeans. During the warmer months, team plain short-sleeved t-shirts or  short-sleeved polo t-shirts, with pants or jeans and a light tailored jacket or a short-sleeved shirt with dressy jeans or pants.

  • Shoes – NO runners. You still need to wear your work shoes. Casual leather shoes would work well with either jeans or pants.
  • Accessories – Yes, it is casual Friday, not go out on a limb Friday. So keep it to a minimum. A watch, your wedding ring (if you have one) and really, that’s about it. No dangling chains, gold or otherwise! And of course a nice belt.

With these handy tips, we hope there would be less scruffy looks or Hawaii -five-O wannabes to the office on casual Friday.
